Jim Ike will present “Finding Your Female Ancestors” at the Computer Club of Oklahoma City genealogy study group at 9 a.m. Saturday at 3000 United Founders Blvd, Suite 201.

Female ancestors can be the hardest to find in genealogy research because in earlier days females could not vote or own property, and their names changed when they married. Various research methods used to locate female ancestors will be discussed during the presentation.

“The Master Genealogist” or “Legacy” genealogy database programs will begin at 11 a.m. For more information, email Jim Ike at jeike@atlinkwifi.com.
